Year 12 Engineering is a course that is designed to cater for a range of students and offers a wide selection of Achievement and Unit Standards that allow students to undertake a Unit or Achievement Standard course for which Excellence Endorsement is possible. Students are able to negotiate a course of between 14 and 20 credits that can be adapted to meet individual interests and talents.


Students will gain specialized knowledge and experience during the design and manufacture of their project. In 2019 students will have a wide range of project options and will be encouraged to enroll in one Level 3 Achievement Standard that will enable them to incorporate components made using CNC routers, CNC plasma, laser cutter and 3D printers to compliment parts made using traditional methods in order to increase student scope and interest.
